Important announcement regarding returning services

This week there has been a slight relaxing of the Delta Level two rules for Anglican churches. We are now able to reduce the distance between people inside the buildings to 1metre. We can also offer hospitality providing everyone remains seated and is waited on. The same person must wait on each group. We are reminded that an online service is still the best risk-free option, and that anyone gathering must wear masks that properly cover the mouth and nose. Congregational singing is still not permitted.


I will offer an online service as usual but this week, any who wish to are also invited to gather at St John’s at 10 am to watch the service together and enjoy hospitality following.

On October 3rd, there will be an online service and a “live” service of Morning Prayer in Old St John’s only at 10am, followed by morning tea at Robert Harris. (Our complex being used for the Vocal competitions that weekend.)

On October 10th, an online service and a “live” service of Morning Prayer in St John’s at 10am .

October 17th. Combined service with Methodists, in St John’s at 10am followed by the Pilgrimage for those joining in.

Midweek Morning :

  • St Saviours: Wednesday 29th September 10am.
  • St Paul’s: Wednesday 6 October 10am.
  • St Saviours: Wednesday 13th October 10am.

This is an attempt to offer a plan in these uncertain times. 

With every blessing

  Message for the Week

This weeks Collect

15th August

20th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Almighty God,

who looked upon the lowliness of the Blessed Virgin Mary

and chose her to be the mother of your only Son:

grant that we who are redeemed by his blood

may share with her in the glory of your eternal kingdom;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever. Amen.
